Press Statement
Leaders of the Left parties held a meeting today. They have issued the following statement:
The Left parties took stock of the joint campaign conducted in the states against price rise, on problems of drought and flood and for food security.
The government has totally failed to curb the continuing steep rise in the prices of food items. The problems of land and unemployment have become acute. Therefore, the Left parties decided to hold an all India rally during the Budget session of parliament in March 2010. The rally will be organised to highlight the problems of the people and to give a thrust to the all India movement.
Those who attended the meeting are: Prakash Karat & Sitaram Yechury from the CPI(M), A.B. Bardhan & D Raja from the CPI, Debabrata Biswas from the AIFB and Abani Roy from the RSP.
